E-Staff Weekly for 9/22/14

Panther P.R.O.U.D.

Lockdown Drill and Lockdown Magnet

On October 3rd at 2:00PM will be having our Fall Lockdown Drill. Please review the procedures in your All Hazards Plan along with reviewing with your students. In addition, please explain to your students that this alarm sound is different than that of the evacuation drill sound.

On Monday, we will be distributing Lockdown Drill magnets. Please click on the link below to get a better understanding of how it is used. Please remember that all hallway doors are required to be locked at all times. This equipment will hopefully prevent you from locking yourself out of your room.

Silver Spoon Points

All staff members that have lunch duty, please remember that one of your responsibilities is assigning point values to each of the classrooms that you have monitored. Thank you!

A Message from Talent Ed.

Because it's Back-to-School season, we've put together the Beginning of School Guide as a refresher located in our TalentEd Perform Knowledge Base.

You will find a recorded Back-to-School webinar, System Admin FAQ and two attachments (Perform Staff Quick Guide and Perform Back to School FAQ - Teachers and Principals).

Out of the Office Next Week

I will be out of the district every day next week. Please contact the main office if you need assistance.

Grade Level and Department Meetings

Below are the dates for our grade level and department meetings this school year. In addition, I have included who is the facilitator for each of these meetings. Please note that due to my absence next week, Matt Smith will facilitate Grade 5. Please wait for further direction for him.

What's Your Why?

Bob Williams - Facilities Supervisor

As young boy, I was always fascinated with how things worked and how it was put together. I remember taking apart a lawn mower engine that was in perfect working order (just to see how it was put together). My father was so mad at me. Since that time, I have learned a lot about what I do and how to accomplish a task by just watching other people and tradesmen. It probably doesn't hurt either that my father was in the Maintenance Dept. at the US Gauge Factory or that his brothers were employed as an auto mechanic, handyman, computer repair and troubleshooting. So, I look at this job as more of what I was destined to do, which is why when I do a job, it is like my name is on it, not just checking it off a list.

Cindy Hayes - Nurse

I decided to go into nursing when I was in high school. I liked science and working with children, so it seemed a natural fit. I worked in hospitals and a doctor’s office for a while. When my children were all in school full-time, I got a job as a staff nurse in PSD. As you know, kids do say the darndest things! There is always a student that gives me a little giggle which makes my day.
